While they have renounced their status as senior members of the British Royal Family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will also lose their patronages. And they have already found a successor.

They will have to hand over. Last February, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced to Elizabeth II that they do not intend to return to the British Royal Family and continue their commitments as senior members of the monarchy. If they wished to continue their official commitments in parallel with their personal plans, the Queen was firm with them and did not accept their proposal, thus depriving them of their many patronages. Among the 2862 organizations the Windsor couple supported, the Sussex couple had many in their care, which will now be redistributed among the members of the Royal Family.

Thus, as our sources report, Princess Anne should take back the title of Captain General of the Royals Marine, an honorary rank which had been transmitted to Prince Harry in 2017 by his grandfather, Prince Philip, and which will make Elizabeth II’s daughter the first woman to receive this title. The Duke of Sussex’s two other honorary titles, Honorary Commander of the Royal Air Force Base Honington and Rear Admiral of the Royal Navy, will also be redistributed by the Queen after consultation with the British Minister of Defence.

Sophie de Wessex will inherit numerous patronages.

In addition to being stripped of his military titles, Prince Harry will also lose his role as godfather of the Rugby League and Union of Rugby XIII, which could go to Mike Tindall, Princess Anne’s son-in-law and husband of the Duke’s cousin, Zara, currently pregnant with her third child. However, if Prince Harry is to lose his patronage, Meghan Markle is not to be outdone and will also have to give up hers. Thus, if all her organizations have not been redistributed for the time being, her title of godmother of the National Theater could be offered to Camilla Parker Bowles, while the organizations depending on the international organization of the Commonwealth, such as the Association of Universities, could go to Sophie de Wessex.
